Michael Episcope.

The 11 development projects of Origin’s QOZ Fund I are expected to have a construction value of over $ 767 million.

Episcope cited the unprecedented and growing investor appetite for QOZ investments as a catalyst for the launch of Origin’s QOZ II fund. The Origin team is spending a significant amount of time developing a strategic portfolio of projects for QOZ Fund I investors, a process that will also benefit QOZ Fund II investors.

“Before the first commitments are made, Fund II investors benefit greatly from the time we have already spent building a pipeline of opportunities for Fund I,” noted Episcope. “Given this foundation, I have no doubt that we see all of the leading QOZ multifamily development opportunities in our target markets ahead of our competitors. “

The main advantages of Origin QOZ Fund II include:

  • A targeted net internal rate of return (IRR) of 10 to 12% and a multiple of net equity of 2.25 x to 2.5 x;

  • Carry forward of the capital gains realized on a previous investment until the end of 2026 by reinvesting these capital gains in the QOZ fund of Origin;

  • Elimination of capital gains tax that the QOZ Fund generates by holding the investment for 10 years or more; and

  • A 10% tax reduction on deferred capital gains tax with an investment made before January 1, 2022.

Origin’s strategy for QOZ investing focuses on three key elements:

  • Invest in grassroots development projects that can produce high risk-adjusted returns, regardless of expected QOZ tax benefits;

  • Develop properties in high growth areas in already changing neighborhoods; and

  • Creating a diversified portfolio of Class A properties built to the core that produce stable cash flow for investors once assets are fully invested and developed.

“Whether we invest for our QOZ or IncomePlus funds, projects are evaluated on their own merits, without relying on any outside influence such as tax relief to improve expected returns,” said Origin CEO David Welk. “If the opportunities we are evaluating cannot be sufficient on their own, we do not pursue them.”

Origin Investments already has three projects going through its rigorous and targeted due diligence process for QOZ Fund II which are located in the Southwest and Southeastern United States in high growth markets.

Origin will accept commitments from accredited investors until they raise $ 300 million in capital or December 31, 2023, the fund’s closing date. For more information on investing in Origin Investments Qualified Opportunity Zone II, visit https://origininvestments.com/offerings/qoz-fund-ii/.
